Description30 years prior to the fateful day a mighty adventurer awakened Elvarg from her slumber, Crandor was a thriving and very much alive island, with a great tradition of mages and adventurers. The history of Crandor is a bold one, enough so that many a Crandorian earned the right to be part of the Champions' Guild! The Crandor we know today is very different from that of the past and there are so many questions that remain unanswered - your chance to uncover the secrets of the past starts with Dragon Slayer II.

  • Find the missing 24 map pieces and use them on the map in the middle of the room. Note: You can hand your pieces to Dallas to save inventory space - Hand in 8 map pieces within the house before heading outside to save time.
    • Search the open chest north of the map for 5 pieces.
    • Go upstairs, search the open stone chest on the north wall for 3 pieces.
    • Go outside, search the Fungi just north of the staircase for 4 pieces.
    • Search the Hook briar south of the house for 7 pieces.
    • Run to the east, search the mushtree for 5 pieces.

  • Talk to Jardric at the museum camp.

To Lithkren![edit | edit source]

Items required: 8 oak planks, 10 swamp paste, at least 12 nails, a hammer and a saw.

  • Bring 8 oak planks, 10 swamp paste, 12 nails (more may be needed as you may bend them), a hammer, and a saw to the west side of the island (on the coast just south-west of the "Mushroom Meadow" Magic Mushtree) and build a rowboat.
  • Talk to Dallas Jones and board the boat. (Chat 1)
  • Head north-west from the boat to the ruined courtyard, and climb up the western stairs.
  • Climb down the trapdoor to the south, down the staircase to the north, and north down another staircase.
  • Talk to Dallas Jones.
  • Search the skeleton to the east and read Aivas' diary.
  • Talk to Dallas Jones again.

Bob the Cat[edit | edit source]

Items required: Catspeak amulet (e). Recommended: Quick transportation to Sophanem.

  • Find Bob the Cat using your Catspeak amulet (e) and talk to him. (Fastest way is to go to anvils in west Varrock and hop worlds)
  • Talk to the Sphinx in Sophanem. (Chat 1)
    • The sphinx will enchant you. You can now talk to cats without the catspeak amulet!

Robert the Strong[edit | edit source]

Items required: Seal of passage, 1 astral rune, a hammer, a pestle and mortar, goutweed, a tinderbox, melee gear (keep gear in the bank until lighting the brazier to save run energy).

Recommended: A good crush weapon, food and prayer potion as the fight at the end might need it.

  • Bring your seal of passage and make sure you have 1 free inventory space! Note: You can still use the bank run by 'Bird's-Eye' Jack without the seal; however, it is needed to speak to the Oneiromancer.
  • Head to Lunar Isle and talk to the Oneiromancer. (Chat 31)
  • Crush the astral rune with a hammer, then grind the astral rune shards with a pestle and mortar.
  • Make a dream potion by filling the dream vial with water (sink west of bank in town) and adding your goutweed and ground astral rune.
  • Gear up for a fight, light the Ceremonial Brazier (located in the largest building on the island), and use your Dream potion on the flame.
    • You may leave to prepare by using the giant history book at the entrance, then rejoin the fight at any time by talking to Bob again.
  • Talk to Bob and Not Bob, then exit out of the dream to gear up if you are not fully prepared. This also allows you to clear out the tinderbox and fill up with combat supplies.
  • Re-enter the dream by talking to Bob outside the brazier, and then head through the barrier and kill Robert the Strong.
    • He can't be fought with ranged or magic, bring melee gear and a crush weapon.
    • He can hit heavy damage through Protect from Missiles but it reduces damage taken. Using chivalry or piety is recommended to speed up the fight, as the most challenging part about this fight is lasting long enough through the damage taken.
    • When he shouts "See if you can hide from this!", run behind one of the pillars to avoid his special attack. If it hits you, it can deal up to 60 damage and will knock off your prayers.
    • Super combat potion, an inventory full of food and a prayer potion are highly recommended. Do not underestimate this fight!
  • Note: If you leave the dream, you do NOT have to remake the dream potion! Talk to Bob to re-enter the dream.

The dragon key[edit | edit source]

  • Talk to Bob again.
  • You now need to collect the four parts of the key to open the door on Lithkren.

Morytania key piece[edit | edit source]

Items required: Ghostspeak amulet, a dragonstone, 2 molten glass, glassblowing pipe, chisel, and a spade. Recommended: Ectophial, amulet of glory or Draynor Manor tab, plenty of food (and filled druid pouches if you have not lit the fire of dehumidification), stamina potion.

A map of possible key piece locations, which splits Mort Myre Swamp into 6 sections, starting at the BKR fairy ring, then further subdivides sections past that.
  • Talk to Reldo in the Varrock Castle library. (Chat 1)
  • Search the second bookcase from the north on the west side of the central row (see this image).
  • Talk to Reldo again. (Chat 1)
  • Go to Port Phasmatys and speak to Sarah, west of the bank.
  • Bring a dragonstone, 2 molten glass, a glassblowing pipe, and a chisel to Ava in Draynor Manor. (Chat 3)
  • Use your glassblowing pipe on your dragonstone and use the inert locator orb on Ava to get a locator orb.
  • Head to Mort Myre Swamp and use the locator to find the buried key piece. Bring food as the locator hurts you every time you use it.
    • The location is random inside the swamp. Each time you use the locator it will tell you which direction to go.
    • Start at BKR and feel your locator device.
    • If you get north-east, it will always be the lone purple spot that you need to cross the bridge to get to.
    • If you get south-west, south, or south-east, go to the center of the subdivided area and scan again. For example, if you got west, go to the center of the blue subdivision and scan there again. If you get west again, you've narrowed it down to a single dig spot.
  • Dig up the dragon key piece.

Ungael key piece[edit | edit source]

Items required: Ranged gear, dragonfire and venom protection, food, and prayer. Recommended: Crumble Undead runes, toxic blowpipe, salve amulet(ei), super antifire potion, anti-venom+, ranging potion, prayer potion, karambwans and dark crabs or similar high healing foods.

Vorkath's acid and fire barrage.
  • Ask Brundt the Chieftain in Rellekka about the dragonkin fortress. (Chat 2) or (Chat 3) if you don't own a seal of passage or (Chat 4) if you haven't started the Fremennik Exiles quest, whichever refers to the fortress.
  • Prepare for a fight with Vorkath. See Vorkath/Strategies for recommended setups.
  • Talk to Torfinn on the dock to the north to go to Ungael. (Chat 1)
  • Kill Vorkath.
    • Before the fight, put on Protect from Magic and drink your Anti-venom+, Super antifire, and Ranging potions.
      • Make sure to re-pot during the fight, Super antifire and anti-venom has a short duration (both 3 minutes).
    • Vorkath has several different regular attacks, including a melee attack. The two important ones are:
      • Orange fireball shot into the air - Move at least two squares away from your current location.
      • Pink fireball shot at you - Your prayers will be knocked off, turn them back on (using quick prayers).
    • After every six regular attacks, Vorkath will use one of his special attacks:
      • He will spit acid all over the crater and start firing fireballs very rapidly at your current location. Find a straight line clear of acid spots and walk back and forth along it to avoid the fireballs. See the Vorkath strategy page for advanced tactics.
      • He will hit you with Dragonfire barrage, freezing you in an ice block. He will then summon a Zombified spawn that slowly walks to you, if it reaches you it will deal 30 damage. Kill it before it gets you, using Crumble Undead will guarantee a one-hit kill. You will stay frozen and Vorkath will stop attacking you until you kill the spawn or it reaches you. A possible strategy is to bring a slayer staff and setting the auto-cast to Crumble Undead, to reduce the need to click as accurately right away.
  • After you kill him, climb over the ice chunks in the north of the crater (if required you can teleport out to restock for a dungeon part, Vorkath will remain dead).
  • Walk along the path to the north-west of the island and enter the cave.
    • There are venomous spiders inside, don't forget your Anti-venom+.
  • Pull the lever in the south-west section, then run to the room on the east wall (you must have at least 15% run energy).
  • Search the stone chest for a dragon key piece and an ancient key.

The Final Battle[edit | edit source]

Recommended: Ruby bolts (e) or ruby dragon bolts (e), 3-4 super restore(4), ranging potion(4), high-healing food, stamina potion, one-click teleport. (TURN AUTO RETALIATE OFF IN ADVANCE as it is not really necessary for the fight and is likely to get you killed in the third phase)

  • Kill Galvek - he has four phases that have 300 hitpoints each.
    • Keep avoiding his ground-targeted fireballs.
    • Turn your prayers back on after his pink dragonfire knocks them off.

    • Use Protect from Magic in phase 1, use Protect from Missiles in phases 2, 3 and 4.
      • Phase 1: Drops eight fire traps- don't get near them or you will be hit for all your health.

      • Phase 2: Launches transparent projectile which drains stats, especially run energy.
      • Phase 3: Summons waves from either the north or south end, avoid them by standing in the gap. Turn off auto retaliate to not get pulled away from the gap.
